Once Matt told me that I was a bizarre mix of an 8 year-old and an 80 year-old, which I think is a pretty fair summary of my personality. For example:
1. There's nothing I like better than going to bed really early, then getting up at the crack of dawn to drink coffee and read the paper. (normal behavior for most geriatrics)
2. Sometimes on those early bedtime nights I'll be sitting in bed at 8pm watching Matilda and eating a popsicle. (only when I was eight I wasn't allowed to have a tv in my room or eat in bed. things are on the ups.)
3. The last time I was at a bar I was wearing glasses and a cardigan and saying things like, "Aren't those girls cold in their tube tops?".
4. Once my mom gave me a Hello Kitty McDonald's toy and said my face lit up like I had just been given the best present of my life. (this was only a few years ago)
My button-down/cardigan/glasses combo are approaching the look of a retired librarian, but the big blue bow and lollipop save me from looking like an card-carrying AARP member. I guess it's better than being bland, right? (ha, I'm punny)
